    Can't open CUDA Preferences in system preferences

    Yeah this was a Yosemite install, I've heard all the issues with Sierra. Tried to go with El Capitan but couldn't get that up and running so I stepped back to Yosemite. All is good except this one issue, which would bother me except I need to use DaVinci.
  4. I have a hack up and running, installed 10.10.5 following RampageDev's clover installation...for the most part. Everything is working except sound, which I get around by using USB. I installed the NVIDIA drivers from here, used 10.10.5 V1. Here is the hardware list ASUS Sabertooth X79 i7 - 4930k GeForce GTX 770 I go to download the CUDA drivers in the link from the same guide, get them installed. Now every time the machine boots up or I try and go to the CUDA panel in system preferences I get this error, "You can't open CUDA Preferences preferences pane because it doesn't work on an intel-based Mac." Not sure what gives. Any ideas? I boot with nvda_drv=1 and everything else seems to function fine, just can't get CUDA rolling. It's a problem because I use DaVinci Resolve. Any help is greatly appreciated. Let me know if I left out any pertinent info. Thanks!

    Video production footage server

    We edit on Adobe, Premier Pro and After Effects. I like the idea of bonding due to the cost of setting even just the server up with 10Gb plus the cost of the switch.

    Video production footage server

    Good question, I'm really not sure what sharing system I need. I obviously am in need of speed above just about everything else. NFS should be the faster option right? Is there a reason not to go with AFP since I'm in an all mac environment?

    Video production footage server

    Alright, I like the idea of going FreeNAS even if we do only use it to archive and continue to keep footage local on the editing bays. I appreciate everyones help so far! Got a few other questions. If I put in 32GB of ECC memory into this machine and run FreeNAS on it, do you think it's capable of handling what I've mentioned above? For the network itself, would I need to get a 10 Gbps card for this machine, and if so do you happen to have some recommendations on that? Is there another route you would consider to increase the bandwidth? We are currently in construction for our next building and the network cables are coming up next to be pulled. Would you go with Cat6 or Cat6a? I've considered Fiber but it's too cost prohibitive for us right now.

    Thanks for your input. What SMB NAS setups would be able to handle that much bandwidth? Given my current "server" setup, which route would you take?

    Video production footage server

    Right now we work with .H264 footage out of Canon DSLR's and ProRes from a Black Magic Cinema. Eventually we will probably upgrade to a C300 but even that maxes out around 50 MB/s I believe. I just have a simple unmanaged gigabit network right now and intend to stick with that. For right now I'd be excited about a solution that allowed 4 editors to work simultaneously if it's possible.
  11. I work for a smaller video production house and we have a few hacks running here. One of them right now is working as our server to backup footage and projects, but all the editing bays currently transfer all of a projects footage onto local drives when working on a project. I'd like to build a central storage server that the footage lives on, and all the editors work through the network when connecting to the footage. If possible I'd like to re-purpose the current server. Here are the specs for it: Intel Core i5-3570k Gigabyte GA-Z77x-UD5H 16 GB of Ram GTX 660 Running Mavericks Right now I have maxed out the SATA ports on the board. I have four 3TB drives, stripped into two 6TB pairs, one backs up the other. I have two 4TB drives, one backs up the other. And some other storage drives for minor things. I currently have 4 editors working daily, but would like this system to be scalable up to about 6 or 7 editors if possible. How could I go about turning this hack into something that could serve out footage through the network to 4 editors? Would I need to consider setting up the server for 10GB network and leave everyone else on Gigabit network? Do I need to look at a RAID card to increase speed? Also do I need to think about running OSX server on this machine? Thanks for any help, I really appreciate it! Justin
